Flight notifications are enabled. Why am I not receiving alerts?
If flight data is missing or late, it is probably due to one of the following reasons:
irlines occasionally provide data on their respective websites but not to the flight-tracking industry.
ome airlines do not provide actual gate departure or arrival times.
ome airlines do not share their data.
udget and charter airlines tend not to share data or only share limited data, so the flight may not be listed
until near the departure time.
ome airlines—particularly carriers outside the U.S.—do not share any gate data with the flight-tracking industry.
ates and terminals often are not provided until approximately 60 minutes prior to departure.
